Musically, Primus and the Deftones are very, very different. Live on stage, they bring intensity to their crowds in a similar way, with great productions, killer riffs & awesome vocals. I guess I hope you're wrong about that prediction, and from the sounds of it, I hope you're wrong on all your predictions.
Deftones put on a captivating live show & their chunes would sound amazing at the Gorge. I kind of feel like if they're "anti-perfect" for Sasquatch then bands like Primus are too, and I've always wanted to see Primus on the lineup. Shit, Death From Above was a super heavy set for Sasquatch, but the crowd was loving it...at least the floor was.
Anyone thought about the Deftones sub-headlining Main stage or even headlining the Bigfoot? ASnacks been listening to some heavier chunes lately, Pelican & Isis to name a couple, both have opened for the 'Tones. New album, big in the NW, never played Sasquatch, open schedule at the end of May before they head to Europe for a full festival run...I dream.
